LEGO is taking over our lives (LEGO furniture! Learning activities!), and we don’t mind… especially now that an intrepid Japanese designer has figured out how to make chocolate LEGO.

Akihiro Mizuuchi built these bears, who are characters from a popular Japanese TV series, out of LEGO first. Then he made molds from the LEGO bears and filled them with chocolate.

The results, Dezeen Magazine says, are so detailed that you can even see the LEGO logo on the chocolate.

Mizuuchi’s other creations are more technology based – nerds will get a kick out of this love letter that he wrote entirely using HTML. But if the viral success of these chocolate LEGO bears is any measure, some of the best designs are those that you can hold in your hand. Or melt in your mouth.
